Anti-Theft devices: opinions? (specifically on hot-wiring...)
I am going to moving to one of the more crime-ridden cities in less
than a few months, and I'm starting to look at anti-theft devices. The
three I were considering were the PowerLock, Viper GPS Tracking unit,
and the Scosche RSA2900F.
First, the PowerLock - is hotwiring more difficult to do with the more
modern cars? I have a Volvo 2001 S80, and I can't imagine that it's as
easy as ripping out a few wires, making it possible to steal the car in
under 30 seconds. But maybe I'm wrong. Any info?
Then, how about the Viper GPS tracking system? My concern is that
someone could just easily check for this and rip it out or disable it.
Finally, the Scosche item looks pretty cool, it would tell me if there
is a break-in into my car. Of course, this alone would be pretty
useless, cause someone could drive away before I even get out to the
car...and then I'm back at my first question - how difficult is it to
hotwire a 2001 Volvo?
Thanks for any help!!
